Britain's Got Talent will return for its 2011 series on April 16, ITV confirmed yesterday. The hit entertainment show will kick off with a 90 minute audition show opener as TellyMix exclusively previously revealed. However the start date comes as a shock, with filming for the auditions still not complete!
The Britain's Got Talent 2011 judging panel, consisting of Amanda Holden, David Hasselhoff and Michael McIntyre, will be Birmingham tomorrow to film more audition scenes as they cast a critical eye over the YouTube auditionees. The top 50 acts from this year's online auditions have been invited to perform live for the panel.
With the auditions then over, it will be a hard task to select the few lucky contestants to go through to the live shows which will kick off from Monday, May 30.
Ant and Dec said: "We haven’t seen any of the show yet but can tell you that it feels really fresh and different so we’re excited about the start of the series."
Britain's Got Talent 2011 airs April 16 at 20:20 on ITV1 and ITV1 HD.
